HO should lodge cheques presented at SOs for new investment against clearing office account of SO and for subsequent deposits in its own clearing account. SOs should check their New Investment Clearing Office account daily to see clearance received at HO and open accounts with value date as clearing date and fund the account.

15. Activities of security pledge or release in case of TD or NSC or KVP should also be carried out at HOs only. In case such request is submitted at SO, SO can verify the facts and recommend security pledge or release on the application and send to HO. At HO, a designated Supervisor will use HAFSM menu and execute the request. Another Supervisor or Postmaster has to verify the same. Application should be returned to SOs which will do necessary entries on the original certificates and keep requests in a separate guard file.

This has the approval of competent authority.
